Pelkonen (COM’96) writes the blog Superconductor—”unbiased, honest classical music and opera opinions, since 2007.” Paul writes that the blog has grown “from an occasional concert or CD review to a near-daily publication covering classical music, opera and the arts in and around New York City, with excursions to Boston, Philadelphia, and upstate New York.
